This custom home was recently completed in Newport, Rhode Island. The homeowner wanted an energy efficient home and Structural Insulated Panels were selected to help accomplish that goal. This home was approximately 9000 square feet. The walls were 6-1/2″ SIP panels and the SIP roof panels were 10-1/4″.
The general contractor on this project was Doug Schear of Newport Housewrights in Middletown, R.I. He has been building with R-Control SIPs for 15 years and is known for reputation and quality work. This helped the homeowner specifiy structural insulated panels for this project also.
Branch River Plastics of Rhode Island manufactured the R-Control SIPs. Even though the plans included some design challenges, Branch River Plastics was able to pre-cut all the panels including the ones for the dormers and the towers.
